When to use CDN?

1 minute read

It is important to understand how CDN works.

Below you can see an example how CDN can speed up the delivery of data to users in the United States.

Now imagine the huge difference CDN makes in a global scale.

So when to use CDN?

It depends on the type of content you serve and in which part of the world. CDN is most effective when hosting static resources such as images, videos, CSS files and scripts.
It is also well known that the more global your audience/users are, the better the results will be.

This could evoke an impression that local users are left behind. With us it isn’t true. Since we have so many PoPs all around the world (and the number is constantly increasing), the loading time of websites which serve a local community is also lower.

Are you still in doubt whether CDN is right for you? There is no better way to find out than to test it directly on your website. We provide a 14-day free trial.
